Rici Hoffarth’s work illustrates the absurd, haphazard, confusing, and wondrous inner world that is sometimes more *real* than what’s “real.” Geometric patterns explode from (or sometimes subtly trail) the human figure, giving the sense of the figure’s internal world bursting into the space outside their body. Her portraiture work is an observed catalog of the contours of peoples’ faces and souls. Intricate line work gives a buzzing, moving effect, as if animating the soul’s movement through the body. These contemplative, introspective works illuminate the artist’s belief that every single being in this world contains multitudes and pieces of the divine.

Starseeds I am a twenty-something year old visual artist native of St. Louis, Missouri, and I go by the artist name, Ori Tala. My artistic talents started and were developed early in my youth. I began working to intersect the arts with business pre-college and made it more of an emphasis for my major in attending college. The pieces I create employ the intertwined styles of cubism, surrealism and imposes the idea of overcoming struggle and the human experience through personal and identical individuality via narratives of brown and black people in America. I use art to pay homage to recognition of mental illnesses and issues faced within underprivileged or oppressed communities. My art themes and style provide peace of mind and tranquility through afro-surrealism with a realistic comic style. I am visually paying recognition to the physical attributes of people of color. My future goal with my artist journey is to provide a children’s art house for on the spectrum, LGBTQIA+ youth and foster youth and to improve the lives of our families and children with art.
